We’ve all experienced stressful days either after school or work, not just that you can still be stressed while at home – such days when you’re under lots of pressure, worrying about something, having responsibilities that are certainly overwhelming and what have you.
The best of things to do is relax but then to some people relaxing after a long day can be difficult even when they really want to.
Apart from crashing, there are certainly other ways you can unwind after you’ve had a long day and I don’t want stressful days bringing you down so I’ve come up with these tips on how to relax mind from stress after such days.
Your personality type also determines the way you relax too whether you are introverted or extroverted so keep that mind while you’re going through this.
Turn off your electronic gadgets
Things like your laptops, tablets and your phones might just keep reminding you of some work you never completed. You cannot relax if you keep having emails or calls coming into your phone, you need to go offline, leave the online world completely, so turn them off. I know you can do it. Except for this blog, this is the only place you’re allowed to come when you are stressed out. I’m not kidding!
Breathe in… slowly, let it out, take your time, do not rush. Repeat this as much as you can for some time. You will notice that as your lungs get a fresh flow of oxygen, you will feel the stress leave you slowly. This is a way of letting go of tension and giving yourself a chance to relax.
This can be done even in the middle of a tedious work. Don’t get too busy that you forget to breathe, you’ve got just one life.
Take a walk
If you are living in a quiet and serene environment you can go on a walk.
Look at the beautiful things of nature and you will begin to notice so many things you’ve never taken note of, stretch yourself, it keeps your mind away from your troubles and the stress you experienced during the day.
This is one of the numerous ways on how to relax mind from stress today.
Listen to good music
A good music can help slow down your heart rate and reduce pressure too, it also act as a soothing balm for the mind, and a quick fix for bad mood so listening to the music you love can help your mind and soul to relax as well.
[Whispering] I heard that classical music can be so relaxing right before bedtime. You can make some moves to compliment your music, you know to the left … to the right …
Well, I don’t know if there are people who relax by talking or engaging in an argument but for me, it’s something I can never try.
By all means get this inner peace you so desire in order to cool off and being in silence is one of the best ways to get it.
Keep quiet and let your brain rest a bit. You don’t have to travel to a deserted place, you can do it right on that couch or on your bed.
See a Movie or Get a book
I do these most of the times especially the movie part. Note that when I say you should get a book, I’m not talking about work or school-related kinda book.
Read novels or see movies with fascinating stories that can make you laugh and can take your imagination outside the real world and get lost in it if you can daydream but always remember to come back to reality.
Drink a lot of water
You know that when you are worn out your body becomes dehydrated so you need to drink lots of water to replace what you lost while you were running up and down that staircase.
Writing can unwind
You can write down how your day went in a book, diary, journal or anything, I do it most times – I simply pick up my book and put down the most important things that got me stressed out or the things I’m grateful for about that day.
It doesn’t have to be too long or make so much sense neither do you have to make use of big grammars and everything, you just scribble things down or you doddle.
All you need at this time is to get your brain to stop reminding of your worries and the things you’ve got to do.
Relax with friends
After a long and stressful day, relaxing with friends is one way to gain back lost energy most especially for the extroverts.
You can either go see a movie together with popcorn in hand, sit out and listen to cool music while having some drinks or who knows probably try some crazy things together and have fun.
I bet you wouldn’t even remember you had a stressful or tiring day
Head on the pillow
It’s time to get your pretty head on a soft pillow and have a long nice sleep and dream of beautiful things.
You know how you put your phone or PC on a RESTART mode, that is what sleep does too, it gets you refreshed when you wake up and your energy goes back to full gauge.
It works all the time but sweetheart never try sleeping on an empty stomach cause I can’t tell you how you’d feel by the time you’re up.
Like I said up there, do not let stressful days bring you down or stop you from pursuing your goals, with these tips I am sure you wouldn’t find it difficult on how to relax mind from stress anytime.
